6 medium to small red potatoes
1/4 c. mayonnaise (or sour cream)
1/2 pkg. dry Ranch Dressing Mix
1/4 c. finely diced onion
1/4 c. finely diced mushrooms
1 slice deli ham or a couple strips of bacon finely diced
1/2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Boil potatoes until just done. Cool Slightly. Slice potatoes in half and scoop out centers of each side to within 1/4″ of skins. So leave 1/4″ of potato to create a shell. Save scooped out potato and mash in a medium bowl.
Add mayonnaise (or sour cream), Ranch Dressing Mix, onion, mushrooms, deli ham or bacon and cheese. (Any other additions or substitutions: peppers, tomato etc.) Mix together.
Take potatoes & turn skin side up & spray lightly with olive oil cooking spray & sprinkle with a season salt. Place in a casserole dish, skin side down and fill each with the mashed potato mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes
I have made these with the little baby red potatoes & used a melon ball scoop for an appetizer.
